ABOUT THE BOOK
Amy Gallagher is an aspiring writer who, after countless rejections, has settled for a career as an English professor in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills. All her dreams suddenly start to unravel as rejections pile up--both from publishers and her boyfriend.
But just as Amy fears her life is stuck in a holding pattern, she meets the mysterious, attractive, and unavailable Eli. She struggles to walk the fine line between friendship and something more with Eli, even as staying true to her faith becomes unexpectedly complicated.
When secrets, tragedy, and poor decisions cause rifts in Amy's relationships, she must come to terms with who she's become, her unrealized aspirations for her life, and the state of her faith. Can she dare to hope that she will find love and fulfillment despite it all?

Amy Inspired is the story of Amy, an English adjunct wannabe writer, who lives with her freespirited roommate Zoe. But Amy feels trapped in her life of jealousy over Zoe's publishing success and her regimen of to-do lists. When Amy begins to feel more for Zoe's friend Eli than she feels like she should, her world falls out of balance. Slowly but surely she learns that life is to be lived, not meticulously planned.
I identified strongly with Amy, in spite of the fact that I'm a full decade ahead in age. I'm exactly with her in terms of realizing life is for living, it's not the end of the world if my writing is never chosen for publication, and matters of faith are best learned not in preaching but in showing love to others to woo them to Christ.
This book is recommended for readers looking for a Christian book that is not preachy or moralistic.
